Rea- sons of delicacy, hoWovor, prevent mq from grati- fying eV6h so reasonable a atwire ^ audi will only »ay that tho harrowing circumstance took place in tho summer of a certain ytsaif, between tho time of tho arrival of the first bear at the Zoological hardens in London and tho present day. i board tho\v?U- ., King Will- crs from home ^nnouneing my ifetnoi'S cioau), t nad just returned to take possession, as well aa a m'mot could, of tho family-estate. I was not very SVeil acquainted with tho world, except the liquid part of it—hfeving been brought up hi a country town, and. shipped in boyhood; but, to make up for that, I had an excellent opinion of mysolf, and watched, both with prkloand anxioty, tho sprouting of what I conceiv- ed to bo a promising moustache. Qh;o evolving after getting myself into full tog, I •Was displaying my horsemanship near the Zoolo- gical Gardons, when I saw in the path leading to the entrance* ouo of tho loveliest women that ever •appeared to tho eyes of an ox-reefer-. \What was •that to me? I don't know. It was a thing, com- pletely settled, in my nriud that .1 was a full-grown man, ami that a full-grown mail lias a right to look at any woman. In short, I iVismountod-^gaVo my horso to the groom, .and followed toy divinity.-— A little girl was behind he*, Walking with the nursemaid, who had another child, an infant, in her ferms; &, to my groat satisfaction, this care- less soityant put the,baby presently into the arms of the older girl. Hot much bigger than itself., I Watched, tho proceeding, saw the..little creature, whoso walk was but a totter at the best, swaying to and fro undo* her burden, and the baby's long clothes trailing on tho gronud as sluypi'occeded. \Madam said I to the lady-^toUpliing my hat in quarterdeck fashion^ ,,: that baby, I, fear* is in: dangerous hands: yon are, perhaps, not aW'arc Of, it.\ §he turned rpund instantly. It was-what I wanted; but the .flash I received from her bOauti- ; vfiil cyies had a World of haughtiness in; it; and al- though she bent'her head; slightly, and said, \Sir I thank -you,\ I did not dare to continue tho con- versation,, hut walked rapidly on. ,1'n fact it was 'obvious the wmmtt. thought I had taken an un- warrantable liberty in criticising the arrangements •of Ivor walk; andfes, when turning away, 1 caught • a smile at my discomfiture ;on thefacc of the nurse- maid, who snatched the baby roughly uway, indig- nation mirigicd with my aWkwardhesst :\V;ho was this lady ?'

I was not itterror inroy anticipations; although the circum- stance that did Occur was too wild even for an im- agination like mine; Had it come suddenly, I aU most think. I should have shut my eyes; heldmy breath-, and stood still; but as it was, I had Up tiih'e'to reflect •: the uppermost idea iiVmymind was, thatl would do something heroic^-sOinething' desperate•;' and when Opportunity offered* I instatt-, tarieonsly did'it. \ . Theparty, with many others, were'looldngoyer the iiiclosuro at the bear oft hisipole;' and in order that all might see, the nursemaTd had the Tittle •girl in hor arms, while the little girl had the baby ioihers. 5liis arrangement was not Very reprehen- sible as a momentarytfrCiik; for th6'maid,of;c.our3e, had got hold of l>Qth the children—the eldev,of whom was jumping ;wrth. glee; and my attentidu, therefore, was exclusively directed to the lady, who stood :al;sorbeti in the spectacle before me,-r- All On asudden there was ascreatii from the Mttle girl: the unfortunate baby was ovdr the enclosure, onSlyingsenselcss on its face in the arena, *aud the ,, gigantic bear was hastdly descending the pole to . secure his prey. ; •Ep,climb, the inclosufe.

The Fair came off oft- the 18th and 19th ultimo. Tlie first day was very unfavorable, acold*ain having set in the evening befotej fend continued with occasional intermission during the* day, As a necessary consequence, but few cattle, .sheep or sW'inc were bi^ought on. Horses were, howev-. cr, entered in good mimbers; and fhiits, flowers,, vegetables, &c, were brought in and arranged.^— The time of entering articles was necessarily ex? tended till next day. Fortunately the weather cleared up towards night, and the next morning the sun rose be'auti- fully—a cool, bracing air from the nOrth^and the aspect of things was changed.
